Raila asks government to speed up NYS graft probe

04 July 2015, 10:10 Marianita Osegere

Nairobi - Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) leader, Raila Odinga has asked the government to speed up investigation into the disappearance of millions of shillings from the National Youth Service (NYS).

Raila insisted that the government should come up with a forensic audit of the ministry’s budget, training, ethics and regional composition of its recruits.

While addressing mourners at the funeral of Margaret Kimurgong, the ODM chairperson in Uasin Gishu County on Friday, Raila said that the government should take responsibility and fight against prevailing cases of corruption in the country.

“The government should get to the bottom of the NYS scandal. The ministry of devolution should explain to the citizens how the money was spent,” said Raila.

Raila further opposed claims that he was the one behind the deputy President's woes at the international criminal court.

“How would I have sent Ruto to The Hague when we were campaigning on the same party?” wondered the opposition leader.

Accompanying the Cord leader was Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo, who said that the opposition party holds no grudge against deputy President William Ruto.

Jakoyo also called on the government to step out and support agriculture in the region by ensuring that maize and tea prices are favourable to the farmers.

Kapseret Member of Parliament, Oscar Sudi however challenged Raila to stop pursuing the scandal that surrounds the land in which Weston Hotel stands.
